Enjoy a ‘Canaries New Year & the Caribbean’ Winter sun getaway with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in December 2014

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' guests can take advantage of a last-minute Winter sun getaway on Braemar's 13-night M1434 'Canaries New Year & the Caribbean' fly-cruise – and celebrate the arrival of the New Year in style – sailing from Santa Cruz, Tenerife on 30th December 2014.

After basking in Winter sun in Tenerife, Fred. Olsen's Braemar heads West to the sultry heat of the Caribbean, where four stunning islands await exploration.

Enjoy the buzz of St. John’s and historic Nelson’s Dockyard; or visit the colourful street market in the town, selling fruit and handicrafts. The view from Shirley Heights is well worth the journey, or relax on one of the 365 beaches – one for every day of the year, so say the Antiguans.

Next, combine some tax-free shopping with sunbathing in Philipsburg; take a water taxi to a nearby beach, studded with colourful clapboard restaurants and outdoor cafés.

Next, it is onto Dominica, where the tropical interior, rich in flora, fauna, and glistening waterfalls, is accessed conveniently from nearby Roseau.

The final port of call is St. Lucia. Here, guests can marvel at the twin Pitons, which dominate the island. Take time to visit some of the gorgeous beaches, including Rodney Bay, surrounded by secluded coves and rocky islets.

Prices for this idyllic ‘Canaries & Caribbean’ Winter sun cruise holiday start from just £749 per person, based on two adults sharing a twin-bedded, Inside cabin, on a cruise-only basis. This cruise is also available as a fly-cruise package via London Gatwick / Manchester from just £1,099 per person.

The price includes accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, and port / airport taxes, plus flight transfers, where applicable.

Guests can also upgrade to Fred. Olsen’s ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package for just £29 per person per night.

Fred. Olsen was delighted to be named one of the Top 3 UK cruise lines and awarded a prestigious ‘Recommended Provider’ accolade, in Which?’s first-ever dedicated cruise survey in 2014. Experts at influential consumer website Cruise Critic have also voted Fred. Olsen ‘Best Value for Money’ in its ‘Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards 2014’,for the third consecutive year.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we are very proud of our smaller ships – Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral - and the imaginative and unusual itineraries they allow us to offer. Every cruise is hand-crafted from scratch by our team of in-house Journey Planners to make sure you are not only visiting the best destinations, but at the best time to experience them.

For us, it’s not just about where we go but how we take you there. We put as much time into planning scenic cruising as we do in choosing the destinations themselves. On board, our Signature Experiences showcase the history, culture, nature and flavours of the destinations you’ll visit – from Treats of the Region, where you can enjoy local delicacies, to our Sky at Sea star-gazing sessions where you can relax with a hot toddy out on deck while our astronomer talks you through the night sky.

Plus, with each ship carrying 1,300 guests or less, our ships are small enough for us to offer a warm, friendly and personal service where nothing is ever too much trouble, as we visit a host of exciting ports in every corner of the globe.
